View Full Version : best place online for usgi m1 carb mags

November 23, 2008, 07:25 PM
having just put a plainfield m-1 carbine on layaway, I am looking for mags, and figured this was where to look (though I have a dupe thread at the art of the rifle) _ I am looking for mags that work, at reasonable prices, original or "non factory" - I am aware of the cmp , but have not yet joined an organization to qualify, and am looking to stock up sooner rather than later....

Sportsman's guide seems to have the lowest prices currently...
Plainfield IS NOT a GI M-1 Carbine..they do have problems !

I kmow its not usgi, but I understand its usgi parts compatible, and has far fewer probs than many of the comparable commercial copies....

Midway USA carry several brands/sizes of after-market M1 Carbine magazines.

I cry for the day when I used to buy them from Bill Ricca 3 for $5 in the late '80's.
